    The installation of ispconfig on SuSE 10 with the perfect setup is working.
    In one of my virtual sites I'm trying to install joomla. I have created a new directory and have copied all relevant files to this directory which are needed to begin the install process. When I go to my site:
    http://www.my-site.com/joomla I only get a Error 404 Object no found. When I check with a ftp-client the directory is there.
    Can someone point me to the right direction;-)

    Is the user site administrator? If not then all uploaded files are stored in the users web directory.

    heyp is right: did you upload to the right directory?

    Ok.

    Is there a .htaccess file in the joomla directory? What happens when you rename it to (e.g.) _htaccess?

    falko, there is no .htaccess in the joomla directory. There is a file htaccess.txt in the folder.

    Is there a page index.htm, index.html or index.php in the directory /var/www/web1/web/joomla/ ?

    Please post the output of:

    ls -la /var/www/web1/web/joomla/

    When you put a normal index.html file into that directory, can you see it in a web browser?

    What's configuration.php-dist? Looks like the configuration file. Maybe you have to change its settings and rename it to configuration.php before joomla can work...

    I put a normal index.html file in that folder and I can't see it in the browser.The browser shows me the same error page as before.
    As for the configuration.php-dist file, indeed it is a configuration file.This is if you don't want to use the web installer you have to rename it to configuration.php to install manually.
    Falko, this afternoon I will install a new maschine with only apache, mysql and php and will try the setup of Joomla again to see if this has to do with ISPConfig.
